Adam, J. M.; Camotim, D.; Dimitrovova, Z.; Dunai, L.; Marti, K.; Pallares, F. J.; Pombo, J.; Saka, M. P.; Schueller, G. I.; Vietor, T.; Costa Neves, L. F.; Barros, R. C.; Topping, B. H. V. (2011-11-01)
Bacteria-induced mixing in natural waters
Sommer, T.; Danza, F.; Berg, J.; Sengupta, A.; Constantinescu, G.; Tokyay, T.; Burgmann, H.; Dressler, Y.; Steiner, O. Sepulveda; Schubert, C. J.; Tonolla, M.; Wuest, A. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2017-09-28)
Swimming organisms can enhance mixing in their natural environments by creating eddies in their wake and by dragging water along. However, these mixing mechanisms are inefficient for microorganisms, because swimming-induce...
Extreme precipitation and drought monitoring in northeastern China using general circulation models and pan evaporation-based drought indices
Faiz, Muhammad Abrar; Liu, Dong; Fu, Qiang; Wrzesinski, Dariusz; Baig, Faisal; Nabi, Ghulam; Khan, Muhammad Imran; Li, Tianxiao; Cui, Song (2018-01-01)
The evaluation of precipitation extremes and the usage of appropriate drought indices are very important for assessment of natural disasters (i.e. floods and drought). For this purpose, we calculated values of indices that...
Stream flow variability and drought severity in the Songhua River Basin, Northeast China
Faiz, Muhammad Abrar; Liu, Dong; Fu, Qiang; Uzair, Muhammad; Khan, Muhammad Imran; Baig, Faisal; Li, Tianxiao; Cui, Song (2018-05-01)
A slight variation in the magnitude of stream flow can have a substantial influence on the development of water resources. The Songhua River Basin (SRB) serves as a major grain commodity basin and is located in the northea...

Fick, Damon R.; Hueste, Mary Beth D.; Kang, Thomas; Kreger, Michael E.; LaFave, James M.; French, Catherine; Bakir, Burcu Burak (2017-05-01)
Development of earthquake lossmap for Europe
Cagnan, Zehra; ŞEŞETYAN, KARİN; Zulfikar, Can; DEMİRCİOĞLU, MİNE BETÜL; Kariptas, Cagatay; Durukal, Eser; Erdik, Mustafa (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
For almost real-time estimation of the losses after a major earthquake in the Euro-Mediterranean region, the Joint Research Area-3 (JRA-3) component of the European Union (EU) Project "Network of Research Infrastructures f...
Dogulu, Nilay; Bhattacharya, Biswa; Solomatine, Dimitri P.; Bernhofer, Christian; Bateman, Allen; Brilly, Mitja (2015-07-03)
Flood risk management (FRM) has emerged as a key concern posing significant engineering and societal challenges in all around the world. Management of and adaptation to increased flood risk is therefore essential, and requ...
Strengthening of infilled walls with CFRP sheets
Ersoy, U; Ozcebe, G; Tankut, T; Akyuz, U; Erduran, E; Erdem, I (2003-05-13)
Introducing RC infills to selected bays in both directions is an effective approach for strengthening existing buildings having various deficiencies. However, if adopted for buildings in use, the building would need to be ...
Seismic strengthening of pin-connected precast concrete structures with external shear walls and diaphragms
KAPLAN, HASAN; NOHUTCU, HALİL; ÇETİNKAYA, NİHAT; Yilmaz, Salih; Gonen, Hasan; Atimtay, Ergin (Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, 2009-12-01)
Pin-connected precast concrete structures are widely used in some European countries of moderate seismicity. However, this structural system is not earthquake resistant because it does not have enough lateral stiffness or ...
Point-scale energy and mass balance snowpack simulations in the upper Karasu basin, Turkey
Sensoy, A; Sorman, AA; Tekeli, AE; Sorman, AU; Garen, DC (Wiley, 2006-03-15)
Since snowmelt runoff is important in the mountainous parts of the world, substantial efforts have been made to develop snowmelt models with many different levels of complexity to simulate the processes at the ground (soil...
